|Ayumi||I see "Ai subeki" a lot. I was wondering if that is the same thing, since it looks like it should be "ai suru beki" Or is it even the same thing?|| |
|Chris||yea, すべき is するべき|| |
|悪循環||I was wondering if 〜ないとis a shortened version of |
〜なければなりません. Does anyone one know?
|jayati|| I think nakereba narimasen no short form is nakya.|| |
|zigboy||correct me if i misunderstood.. i think 〜ないと alone is incomplete (unless its 〜ないと。。。in which the obvious is omitted), しないといけない ＝ しなければならない。|| |
